A little break from Shouriger's longer project. Decided to take a lil crack at rumor fun for Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger like I've done before during rumor season. Not reall much though rumors seem to be picking up a lil more and more so I figured now was the time. As always, this is just me taking a lil inspiration from the name and a few rumors, 100% not meant to be official.
Basically since the name indicates machines, I just went with that. And then played with my hopeful core color combo of RBYPK. I know there's recent rumors of a possible insect motif, which would be dope, but we'll see. I didn't feel like incorporating that because I had already gotten good ideas for their motifs in machines. A renamed OC title for the team is "Anzen Sentai Keisokuger" (lit. Safety Sentai Measurement-ger). Yes, it's a bit of a silly name but w/e.
"If you need help, just A.S.K.!"
The special movie trio:
"The special Emergency Department!"
Playing into the machine aspect, the core five and silver are themed around the six simple machines and their vehicles are kinda/sorta taken from those: Red (wedge, dragster), Black (screw, drill), Yellow (lever, dump truck), Blue (wheel & axle, motorcycle), Pink (pulley, crane), and Silver (inclined plane...jetplane). Their belt symbols kinda take inspiration from these motifs. The movie trio are just your basic emergency/first responder vehicles: Crimson (firetruck), Navy (police cruiser), White (ambulance). Per my recent tally of my OC ranger colors, I wanted to stray away from green and violet even though I love using those colors. They get their respective numbers on their helmets because I needed something to fill the space. I know it's not a great design piece, but it looked worse blank.
Their sashes are basically tape measures. The bright neon color is played into the safety aspect of the team. Silver gets an orange aspect instead, and the movie trio get the red coloring because sirens. They get a little Dekaranger-esque initial badge on their chest with their initials A.S.K., and the movie trio gets E.D. For the most part, all their visors are a general V shape, because Sentai likes Vs, especially for anniversary series. So in my head, their helmets form by a V akin to Gokaiger...and V means five in Roman numerals, and there's nine rangers...9x5=45, which would be Zenkaiger's series number. Woohoo for stretching!
Everything here is my hard work. Please don't touch anything without permission. Thanks!
